• Listen on link local address

    From Michiel van der Vlist@2:280/5555 to All on Tuesday, August 07, 2018 22:24:08
    Hello All,

    Binkd will listen on the fe80:: link local address when "listen [::]" or no "listen]" is in the config.

    But binkd will not accept a link local address in the listen command. It accepts unique global addresses and also ULA addresses but not fe80:: adresses.

    listen [2001:1c02:1100:d700:f1d0:2:280:5555] is accepted.
    listen [fd51:550:40b9::215:60ff:fe52:213d] is accepted.
    listen [fe80::215:60ff:fe52:213d] causes an error.

    Is there a reason for this and if so what is the reason? Or is it just an oversight?

    Cheers, Michiel
